Company reinforces commitments to climate action, waste reduction, and resource efficiency

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – February 28, 2024 – Jabil Inc. (NYSE: JBL) today released its fiscal year 2023 Sustainability Progress Report, detailing the significant progress the company has made toward meeting its five-year sustainability goals. The report highlights major steps forward in the company’s reduction of operational greenhouse gas emissions through its use of renewable energy, efficient use of water, and embrace of the circular economy to reduce landfill waste.

“At Jabil, we are driven by a common purpose: to make a positive impact for each other, our communities, and the environment,” said Kenny Wilson, CEO. “Our purpose and business strategy are firmly rooted in sustainable development, and it is Jabil’s priority to align our efforts with governmental regulations and policies while being mindful of the broader macroeconomic, social, and political trends that influence our contributions.”

Fiscal year 2023 accomplishments:

  • Earned Zero Waste to Landfill certification at five manufacturing sites, putting us 5% of the way to our goal of 20% of operations achieving 90% or more landfill diversion.
  • Reduced our purchased or acquired water intensity by an average of 19% globally, compared to our 2021 baseline.
  • Strengthened our circular economy capabilities through the acquisition of Retronix, a market leader in electronic component reclamation and refurbishment.
  • Completed over 1 million volunteer hours in our local communities during calendar year 2023, achieving this bold goal for the second consecutive year.
  • Implemented health and wellbeing programs at 99% of manufacturing sites.
